Our High Holy Days would be beautiful with only the voice of our Cantor but having Octarium provides a much more spiritual experience. Their voices entertwined with the Cantor's gives our holiest days of awe a splendid aura not achievable without their skills. Singing our songs demands the group learn Hebrew...a skill they did with integrity.

This musical group has added an extraordinary amount of beauty and soul to our High Holy Days services at The Temple, Congregation B'Nai Jehudah each year that they have provided music. I'm a professional Bassoonist, teacher and adjudicator in the Kansas City area and I've performed with many ensembles in all the years I've been here. None of the choral ensembles I have ever worked with or heard has the beauty and blend of this wonderful group of people. They are so tasteful and musical, and it's also hard to believe that the Hebrew language that they sing for our Services is not native to any of them! If we could have them for all Holidays and Shabbat celebrations, it would be a dream come true!
They also work hand-in-glove with our marvelous Cantor Sharon Kohn, each party making the other's voice seem so effortless.
Please consider this wonderful group for the opportunity to receive grant support, as it would truely be a shame not to support their marvelous efforts at music-making.

Our High Holy Days Services during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at The Temple, Congregation B'Nai Jehudah. They performed almost continuously for several hours at a time for these important Congregational worship services, singing and chanting along with our Cantor Sharon Kohn in Hebrew.

I have heard Octarium sing for several years during our High Holiday services at our synagogue. Their professional voices add beauty to our service. They are well disciplined, always watching their director, and coming in together as well as releasing together when that is called for. They make a beautiful, moving contribution to our services, and I am always glad to see them.

This group is so beautiful. They obviously are very good at what they do and work very hard to sound so awesome. They sound so flawless in their harmonies and the way their voices blend is very hypnotic and yet it is also soothing. These folks deserve our support! They are so very talented!

Octarium has performed some of my choral works in past seasons. Without exception, their treatment of the choral art was flawless. They are wonderful musicians and even better people. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with them, and I look forward to future collaborations.

Encourage them to perform more widely throughout the country. More arts patrons need to experience Octarium!

While I've not been able to see Octarium perform live, I am fortunate to have obtained several of their cds. The sounds and harmonies of Octarium are beautiful, many voices combining to make one lovely voice. I look forward to the day when I will have the opportunity to attend a performance!

I have had the pleasure of seeing Octarium perform many times over the years they have been a choral group. They have amazing blend and sound. You can tell that each musician is talented in their own right, but that together they are stronger and even more beautiful together as a group. You can also see a wide range of genre with them. When I hear choral, I think sophisticated and classical. But, they push the boundaries of that definition and have fun. One can tell that the group members are friends and have a great sense of humor. I only hope to hear much more from them in the future! They deserve great things.

...only wish to see them more--that each musician could be funded in a way that their music careers could be their only.
